The Paralyzation of Fear... (Connie J...)
"verb (used with object), par·a·lyzed, par·a·lyz·ing. to affect with paralysis. to bring to a condition of helpless stoppage, inactivity, or inability to act." (Googled definition)
Recently, a situation happened in my small town involving someone's pet, making an official police press release necessary, regarding it.
I heard about it, on Facebook, yesterday; and I have been more aware of my fear, ever since. I have watched SVU, and other shows; and just from that, alone, I know how things can escalate.
When you are in a Domestic Violence situation, I think there is even more fear involved, daily; and sometimes, there IS a type of paralysis mindset.
In order to break that fear-paralysis, you must acknowledge and face it, so the power it has over you begins to lessen.
My thots for you in this new year, are that you use your fears, though intended to keep you down, to help you rise to overcome ANY adversaries.
Remember, you are only kept down, if you allow yourself to be.
Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE #EtSoV
